This ride is for all abilities. A half day adventure, honing your natural horsemanship skills followed by a ride out into the picturesque NZ country side at River Valley.
Harmony With Horses is a half day horse riding adventure; combining a challenge packed natural horsemanship session, followed by a freestyle ride over the spectacular Rangitikei hill country which is suitable for all abilities.
We start with building a trusting relationship between you and your horse. It does not matter if you are new to horses or they have been a part of your life forever. We work with you at the level you need to be working at.
Next we take you and your horse, who is now your partner, out into the beautiful country side of River Valley. Here you will have the opportunity to try everything you learnt beforehand. You will be riding over the hills, taking in the spectacular scenery, and if you are up for it, cantering through the fields.
